Released on 2007-07-29 by Stefan H. Holek for Zope 2.9, Zope 2.10 under Zope Public License (ZPL) available for All platforms.
Software development stage: stable
CMF integration for the popular ExtFile product. CMFExtFile replaces the stock File and Image portal types with ExtFile and ExtImage respectively.
  • ExtFiles and ExtImages are stored on the filesystem, not in the ZODB.
  • ExtFiles and ExtImages are served as stream iterators, significantly improving performance and responsiveness.
  • ExtImages can generate scaled-down previews of the image data. If present, previews are used by the extimage_view and thumbnail_view templates.
  • The extfile_properties tool allows you to define settings for ExtFile and ExtImage objects on a per Folder basis. These settings include the cache manager used, and whether or not ExtImages should generate previews.
  • Ships with Extensions.Install.install and a GenericSetup extension profile. If need be, you can use Extensions.Install.uninstall to remove CMFExtFile from a CMF Site.


  • PIL 1.1.5 or higher
  • Zope 2.9.6 or higher
  • CMF 1.6.4 or higher
  • ExtFile 2.0 or higher
